AccessData and Belkasoft announce the release of Forensic Toolkit
(FTK) with Belkasoft-made built-in analytics core.
NOVEMBER 13, 2017 – AccessData and Belkasoft, two worldwide
leaders in digital forensics, joined their forces to deliver the most comprehensive
toolkit for acquiring and analysing digital evidence. The updated Forensic Toolkit
(FTK) v.6.3 integrates Belkasoft-made analytics core, delivering an all-in-one product
extracting a wider range of evidence than older FTK builds. The new tool is aimed
at forensic experts, law enforcement and police forces, IT security departments
and specialists who work to prevent crime against children.
Users of the latest version of FTK gain the ability to utilize Belkasoft’s expertise
in data carving, extraction and analysis. FTK users will be able to discover and
analyze a wide range of digital artefacts extracted from mobile and desktop devices,
including deep analysis of SQLite records and access to deleted information.
“Belkasoft is proud of this integration”, says Yuri Gubanov, Belkasoft CEO.
“We worked very hard for this to happen, spending countless hours to polish every
little thing and deliver a high-quality result, especially to ensure seamless operation
in clusters and distributed environments. We put a high value to our relationship
with AccessData, and consider the partnership as a seal of quality. Our valued customers
will undoubtedly benefit from this integration partnership, receiving a range of
extra capabilities making their job easier.”
“FTK and AD Lab users can now gain seamless access to nearly 200 additional mobile
parsers through an add-on purchase, thanks to our expanded technology partnership
with Belkasoft Evidence Center,” said Victor Limongelli, chief executive officer
of AccessData. "This allows users to analyze data from popular mobile apps –
such as WhatsApp and Facebook – to add more color and context to their investigations."
